Caregiving is a long and demanding journey

As a family caregiver, we often put the needs and interests of our loved ones ahead of ourselves, looking after them 24/7. Over time, the physical, emotional and mental exhaustion can lead to burnout. Besides taking a toll on our health, caregiver burnout also affects the quality of care that our loved one receives.

While caring for our loved one, we sometimes find ourselves in need of an extra pair of helping hands.

If our loved one was recently discharged from a hospital post-surgery, additional care support and expertise can help. When our helper is on home leave, we may not be able to cope with our loved one’s care needs single-handedly. Other times, we may suddenly be caught up in a work or family emergency that requires us to be somewhere else at a short notice.

Caregiving can be demanding. A little help can go a long way.

What is respite care?

Personal Care

Assist with the activities of daily living (ADLs) - eating, bathing, getting dressed, toileting, transferring, and continence.

Simple Nursing Care

Assist with simple nursing procedures such as changing of feeding tubes and suctioning.

Complex Nursing Procedures

From injections to wound care, have your nursing procedures done safely in the comfort of home.

Night Care

Care provided through the night to assist with toileting or nursing needs, prevent wandering and reduce fall-risk.

Medication Reminders

No more missed doses. Our caregivers can help to remind your loved one to take their pills at the allotted time.

Companionship

Befriend and engage through conversations, interactive activities and outdoor trips.

Staying Active

Keep the mind and body active and alert with physical exercises and stimulating brain activities.

Pace yourself and engage respite care to avoid caregiver burnout

For caregivers, breaks are not a luxury, but a necessity. It is important for us to take time off to rest and recharge so that we can continue journeying with our loved ones.

Whether you need some time to unwind or simply need an extra pair of hands to support with care, you can tap on respite care options.

Qualified nurses and caregivers are available, and can support your loved one with activities of daily living and nursing procedures, giving you peace of mind while you take a break from caregiving.

If you know that your helper will be on home leave or that your loved one will be discharged from the hospital at a certain date, you can plan ahead and engage care support to avoid being overwhelmed with handling your loved one’s care needs singlehandedly. Should you have an emergency to attend to, respite caregivers can step in to help too.
